Could Carnival and IAG shares be the FTSE 100 bargains of the year?

Matthew Dumigan | Friday, 5th June, 2020 | More on: CCL IAG Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Could Carnival and IAG shares be the FTSE 100 bargains of the year? “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The outbreak of Covid-19 and the resulting sell-off in equities has affected certain stocks substantially more than others. Two companies that have suffered abysmally are Carnival (LSE: CCL) and International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG). So much so that Carnival is due to be relegated from the FTSE 100 index later this month.In the depths of the market crash, both saw their share prices tumble by eye-watering amounts (80% and 73% respectively). Since then global stocks have staged a recovery. However, both companies remain a long way from their pre-crash valuations. So, with the potential for some serious value, could Carnival and IAG shares be the bargains of the year?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…CarnivalSeveral factors contribute to Carnival’s share price ruin. The international cruise line operator has suspended all operations as its ships sit idle in harbours around the world. The company, which is already bleeding cash dangerously, has written off a summer return to operations and won’t be back to sail the seas until October at the earliest.That said, I’m encouraged by the fact that the majority of guests affected by schedule changes want to sail in the future, with “fewer than 38% requesting refunds to date”. Moreover, staff layoffs, pay cuts, and a suspension of the dividend should strengthen the group’s liquidity position.Since early April, Carnival shares have rallied by around 116%. It’s worth noting that while that is a staggering number, it is nowhere near enough to allow the company to recover its pre-crash valuation. To achieve that, the Carnival share price will have to extend its rally by around another 400%. Combine this revelation with a price-to-earnings ratio of 3.4 and the potential for significant value becomes increasingly clear. But the future isn’t certain. If holidaymakers fail to make a swift return to cruise ships and passenger numbers remain stubbornly low, Carnival’s long-term survival prospects will inevitably be in doubt.International Consolidated Airlines GroupLikewise, the tumble in IAG’s share price seems relatively straightforward to comprehend. The impact of Covid-19 on the airline industry has been particularly palpable, with entire fleets grounded and many staff furloughed. IAG doesn’t expect passenger demand to recover before 2023 and admits that group-wide restructuring will be necessary for survival.Nevertheless, the company is pinning their hopes on a “meaningful return” to service from July 2020, albeit in a reduced capacity. More importantly though, IAG has taken the necessary steps to bolster its liquidity position and boost cash reserves.Ultimately, I’m sceptical about the doom and gloom that others cast over the long-term future of air travel. I expect it to play an equally important a role in a post-pandemic world as it did previously. As such, depending on how long the global economy takes to recover, IAG shares could prove to be great value for investors who buy today. A P/E ratio of 2.6 backs that thought up nicely.Final verdictUltimately, I don’t see either of these companies going anywhere anytime soon. Provided operations can get up and running swiftly enough, I expect impressive share price gains to reward investors who took the plunge. However, only time will tell whether Carnival and IAG shares turned out to be the bargains of the year, and would-be investors must be prepared to ride this one out over the long term.center_img See all posts by Matthew Dumigan Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Can you hear me now?

first_img TAGSInspirationPastor Doug Bankson Previous article41 snakes and a beetleNext articleJericho as a metaphor for inclusiveness? Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR InspirationBy Pastor Doug BanksonRecently while I was praying for some people, this thought came into my heart:“You won’t hear a direction word until you obey the correction word.”Spring is in the air, and many people are seeking God for a new direction in their lives, a fresh “word from the Lord,” but God can’t give you a word of direction when you aren’t willing to obey His written word.2Tim. 3:16 tells us, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: ”We must be doers of the word of God if we are to be led by the Spirit of God. The Word corrects the conscience and confirms the Spirit, so when we are living in disobedience to the Word, it confuses our ability to hear from God. It darkens and damages our conscience until we can’t have faith even when He does speak to us.And I’m not just talking about the parts of the Word you like. Just like working out your body, the exercises you tend to avoid are usually the ones that you need the most cause that’s where you’re weakest and that causes the most discomfort. Even those who make it to the gym still tend to work out the areas they have already developed while procrastinating or skipping the parts that need the most attention. So it is with the Word.God speaks to us first through His Word, and if we become hardened to it, God will also speak through your pastor who is called to correct and instruct in righteousness (make sure you have a godly pastor and not just a poser!) True pastors will obey 2Tim. 4:2 which commands them to, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” To reprove is to correct, and it must be done in patience and with sound doctrine, which again is the rightly divided Word of God.So ask the Holy Spirit to help you, and to show you where you have been disobedient to the Word, and then repent and ask forgiveness. Here’s the great part – HE WILL! Your conscience gets a reset, and you’ll be free from condemnation and confusion. Now start to obey the written Word, and you will begin to hear Him leading you again.His Word is His will for you, so listen to His corrective will, and you will hear His directive will!

The house is an attempt to blur the boundaries between exterior and the interior of an urban house. The concept of the house is an illustration of a metamorphosis of eastern spatial interiors and western aesthetics. It was designed for two brothers, on two separate levels yet connected without exposing oneself to the harsh weather conditions. Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe residence utilizes the concept of two cross axes- a vertical axis through the plan which is the central circulation axis for the ground level and it links the house visually from the front to the rear boundary wall and a horizontal axis which connects the two landscaped courtyards creating a vision across the width of the plot. It is at one end of this horizontal axis that the main entry of the house is positioned. The individual enters on the horizontal axis and then is released onto the vertical axis. It was the client’s desire to have a luxurious home; thus, it was a concern to expand the constraints of a small plot and make the site and consequently the house appear larger. Therefore, the cross axes play an integral role in achieving the same. Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe main staircase upto the first and the second floor is placed right next to the main entrance so that it lends the required privacy to the residents of the ground floor. At the very same time, the visual connection of the staircase is retained with the house on both levels as it looks on the courtyard next to the main entrance of the house, with long vertical glazing running along the staircase. Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjAn earthen palette of materials has been selected to allow for the emphasis of natural elements in the house. Rough textures of stone and cobbles have been used in most landscape areas including the central and the rear courts. Extensive use of wood allowed for the necessary warmth in the interiors.

Young revolutionaries: ‘FIGHT with FIST’

first_imgfistyouth.orgTwo years after the mass resistance of Occupy Wall Street that awakened class consciousness for a new generation of young people, the capitalist crisis is still at a lockdown for youth. The acquittal of George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, stands as a firm reminder that youth of color are at risk and that the system is failing us.We are in year five of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and the president is poised to invade yet another country, with the mob mentality and logic of imperialism. Meanwhile our schools are closing and young people can’t find jobs.Crushing student debt weighs down on young workers, forcing many of us to work multiple jobs just to get by. Racist violence terrorizes our communities, leading us to ask: When will Trayvon’s Law be passed instead of Stand Your Ground or Stop and Frisk? Backwards anti-immigrant policies destroy families and create a culture of fear and self-policing.While the situation at this time is bleak, it is not hopeless for young people. The answer must be in collective struggle, with young people in the lead.In July of this year, a gathering of young revolutionaries met in Detroit to discuss a youth-led response to the capitalist crisis. We come from all sectors of the working class and seek to continue the tradition of young people’s militant resistance to the status quo that has been seen in groups like the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in the Civil Rights movement all the way to the Dream Defenders, who occupied the Florida state Capitol for almost a month this past summer.At the gathering, we ­resolved to bring back to life and reform our national organization FIST — Fight Imperialism, Stand Together. It’s time for us to organize to build the type of society that puts people’s needs first. FIST is dedicated to achieving such a society by building a multinational, multigendered organization of revolutionary youth that will organize and fight in the streets. We currently have young people organizing in Durham, N.C., Detroit, New York City, Rockford, Ill, Buffalo, N.Y. and Philadelphia.As Ella Baker said in 1969: ”In order for us as poor and oppressed people to become part of a society that is meaningful, the system under which we now exist has to be radically changed. This means that we are going to have to learn to think in radical terms. I use the term radical in its original meaning — getting down to and understanding the root cause. It means facing a system that does not lend itself to your needs and devising means by which you change that system.”Tommy Cavanaugh, who has just started FIST in Rockford, Ill., says, ”We’ve received a very positive response in the community and have already had a number of youth step forward in wanting to join FIST and get involved in the struggle. It really shows how youth today are looking for a better way to live and the desire to fight for it.”FIST calls on young people across the U.S. to join us in fighting to abolish capitalism and to fight for socialism.

National Day of Mourning: From Plymouth Rock to Standing Rock

first_imgPolice turn water cannons on Dakota Access Pipeline protesters.This year’s commemoration of the 47th National Day of Mourning on Nov. 24 in Plymouth, Mass., is dedicated to the heroic #NoDAPL Water Protectors at Standing Rock, N.D., and to the struggle for recognition of Indigenous Peoples’ Day.The day’s events will once again honor Native political prisoner Leonard Peltier, a fighter for the rights of Indigenous and other oppressed peoples. The ailing 72-year-old hero has been unjustly imprisoned for 40 years, and is now in Florida far from his nation, the Turtle ­Mountain Band in North Dakota. His supporters worldwide are calling for President Obama to grant clemency and free Peltier now.The so-called “Thanksgiving” holiday starkly recalls the centuries of atrocities committed against Native peoples, first by European colonizers and then by U.S. administrations. Indigenous lands stolen; cultures and languages under siege; bigotry, injustice and genocidal violence aimed at this country’s original inhabitants are the real U.S. history, not the myths.Workers World is in solidarity with Indigenous nations in their ongoing struggles in the U.S. and throughout the Americas for political, economic and social rights. We recognize the right to self-determination of Indigenous people everywhere and support their efforts for decolonization and sovereignty. We condemn racist discrimination, oppression and corporate exploitation that continue against these communities, resulting in economic devastation and impoverishment.The U.S. government has broken every treaty ever signed with Native nations in order to steal their lands, displace their peoples and back greedy corporations in search of oil, gas, minerals — and superprofits. We applaud Native peoples worldwide who boldly resist capitalists’ pillaging of the earth with total disregard for the planet and the life on it.Indigenous peoples are taking leadership in the struggle to stop environmental genocide in the U.S. and across the globe. Heroic Native activists waged a victorious, militant, seven-year struggle with non-Native allies to stop the Keystone XL Pipeline. Native peoples actively oppose “climate injustice” — whereby poor countries and peoples are harmed by climate-made disasters caused by carbon emissions, fracking, hazardous pipelines and environmental racism.Workers World stands in solidarity with Indigenous peoples worldwide who are fighting back against the capitalists’ escalating destruction of the planet. We assert that their struggles and righteous demands for reparations from corporate polluters for ecological damage must be supported.‘Water is life’The courageous months-long struggle by the Standing Rock Sioux nation to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline’s construction has inspired thousands of people to join with them in solidarity and garnered international support. In addition to destroying sacred land, the DAPL would pollute the Missouri River, affecting the water supply for millions of people. This is a fight for sovereignty, land, water and the lives of future generations.Three hundred Indigenous nations and their supporters have opposed the building of the DAPL, which is being unlawfully constructed on stolen land without the Standing Rock Sioux Nation’s permission. These brave, unarmed protesters have blocked bulldozers and faced down corporate mercenaries and militarized police who wield pepper spray, rubber bullets and tear gas. Water protectors have been beaten, bitten by attack dogs, arrested, strip-searched, numbered and kept in dog kennels.Native nations are demanding that the U.S. government honor the 1851 Treaty of Fort Laramie with the Oceti Sakowin (Seven Council Fires of the Great Sioux Nation), which recognized that this land belongs to them. By law, so does the water. The North Dakota police and U.S. National Guard are violating federal treaty rights as they act to protect the interests of oil profiteer Energy Transfer Partners.Workers World wholeheartedly supports Native water protectors and their allies at Standing Rock. We, along with hundreds of organizations, sent a delegation to their encampment to show our solidarity, and we encourage other groups and individuals to travel there and/or show support in whatever ways they can.Workers World raises high the banner of solidarity with all Indigenous peoples on this National Day of Mourning. We join with millions of people worldwide in loudly proclaiming, “No DAPL” and “Free Leonard Peltier!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Authorities free two feminist journalists but close their NGOs

first_imgThe Iranian authorities have released 22 of the 25 women journalists and women’s rights activists held in Evin prison north of Tehran between yesterday and today. Journalist Jila Bani Yaghub, journalist and blogger Mahbubeb Abbasgholizadeh and journalist and lawyer Shadi Sadr are still being held and are continuing a hunger strike begun yesterday in protest at their continued detention.———————————————————–07.03.2007 Journalists and feminist activists begin hunger strike after three days in jailReporters Without Borders today called for the immediate release of 25 women journalists and feminist activists held in Tehran’s Evin prison, who, on the eve of International Women’s Day, began a hunger strike to protest against their continued detention. Thirty-three women were arrested on 4 March while demonstrating outside the Revolutionary Islamic Tribunal in Tehran in protest against criminal charges brought against five activists who organised a women’s demonstration in June 2006.“”We call for the immediate and unconditional release of the journalists and activists in custody in Evin prison,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “These women have not broken any law. They simply exercised their right to demonstrate peacefully.”“After censoring websites which relay and defend the demands of women’s rights organisations, the Iranian authorities have now deprived their main contributors of their freedom.” It added.

They had been charged on 12 June 2006 for organising a peaceful demonstration in support of reform of laws which discriminate against women in Iran. They were re-arrested when they left court alongside the demonstrators who had come to support them. A total of 33 women were arrested, 22 of them journalists. They were put into isolation cells in Evin prison. Three of them who are sick, Parvin Ardalan (journalist), Fatemeh Govarayee (journalist) and Mahnaz Mohammadi (activist) have been refused access to their treatment. Parastoo Dokoohaki (journalist and blogger), Saghar Laghayee (journalist and contributor to website meydaan.com), Saghie Laghayee (online journalist on meydaan.com), Niloufar Golkar (online journalist on we4change.com), Farideh Entessari (activist), Sara Loghmani (activist), Nahid Entessari (activist) and Parastoo Sarmadi (journalist) were all today released on bail while the others began a hunger strike to protest against their continued detention. Journalists and feminists Shadi Sadr and Mahbuheb Abbasgholizadeh were released on 19 March after being held for two weeks. Sadr had to pay bail of 2 billion rials (170,000 euros). Abbasgholizadeh had to pay 2.5 billion rials (210,000 euros).Non-governmental organisations headed by Sadr and Abbasgholizadeh were among three NGOs closed down on 15 March on the orders of the Tehran state prosecutor. The three NGOs are Raahi (headed by Sadr), Markaz Karvazi Sazmanhaye Gheyr Dolati (headed by Abbasgholizadeh) and the Iran Civil Society Organisation’s Training and Research Centre (ICTRC), which Abbasgholizadeh helped set up in 2002.———————————————————–16.03.2007 One woman journalist freed but two others still in Evin prisonReporters Without Borders called today for the release of two women journalists, Mahbuheb Abbasgholizadeh and Shadi Sadr, who were arrested on 4 March for taking part in a peaceful demonstration outside the Islamic revolutionary court in Tehran. Most of the 33 journalists and feminist activists arrested that day were released by 8 March, but Abbasgholizadeh and Sadr are still being held in solitary confinement in Evin prison. They are charged with threatening national security, publicity against the Islamic Republic and participating in an unauthorised demonstration.A contributor to several pro-reform Iranian newspapers such as Jameh and Yas-e no, Sadr is the editor of two online publications, womeniran.com and meydaan.com. She is also a practising lawyer and often represents women who been sentenced to death by execution or stoning.Abbasgholizadeh used to be the editor of Farzaneh, a magazine about women’s issues that has been closed down. Like Sadr, she writes for several pro-reform newspapers and is one of the co-editors of meydaan.com. She was previously detained from 1 to 30 November 2004 during a wave of arrests of online journalists.Jila Bani Yaghub, a woman journalist who was arrested at the same time as Abbasgholizadeh and Sadr, was released on bail on 7 March.————————————————————8.03.2007 – Twenty-two women journalists and rights activists freed, three still held Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Follow the news on Iran Help by sharing this information RSF_en News February 25, 2021 Find out more IranMiddle East – North Africa June 9, 2021 Find out more Websites we4change, zenestan, kanonzanan and meydaan, which employ many of the journalists arrested on 4 March, have been censored in Iran after launching online campaigns backing a change in women’s status.List of journalists currently held in Evin:- Asieh Amini, journalist and blogger (http://varesh.blogfa.com/)- Jila Bani Yaghoub, journalist, Sarmayeh and http://www.irwomen.com/- Mahbubeb Abbasgholizadeh, journalist- Mahbubeh Hosseinzadeh, journalist and blogger (http://kharzar.blogfa.com/),- Zara Amjadian, online journalist (http://www.we4change.com)- Mariam Hossein Khah, online journalist (we4change)- Jelveh Javaheri, online journalist (we4change)- Zeinab Peyghambarzadeh, journalist and blogger- Maryam Mirza, journalist and blogger- Nahid Keshavarz, online journalist (we4change and zenestan)- Nasrin Afzali, journalist and blogger- Elnaz Ansari, online journalist (we4change and zenestan)- Fatemeh Govarayee, journalist- Minoo Mortezayee, journaliste- Nushin Ahmadi Khorasani, journalist- Parvin Ardalan, journalist- Nahid Jafari, online journalist (we4change)- Shadi Sadr, journalist and lawyer. to go further News After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists Newslast_img read more
